comment When were the terms “Major” and “Minor” applied to keys?
I am curious now at what date English theory adopted the modern terms 'major' and 'minor', and from what foreign language -- French? If I find out anything more I will post it here.

comment Parallel Fifths in Pachelbel's Canon in D?
Some historical texts about counterpoint state that small errors are more permissible in a strict canon, since the canonic relationship puts so many additional restrictions on the movement of the parts. As well as being in an inner voice and separated by rests, the fifths are also partially covered up by all the rhythmic activity in the other parts.
